Chrome Jackson is a steely-gray, hard metal of lustrous sound-scrapes and bruises.
Poked, plucked and prodded to a perennial high polish, Chrome Jackson's debut album “Chrome Forest” drags listeners knuckle-first through a corrosive wilderness of winding vascular tissues, interwoven to form a hard psyche.
Filled with innovative guitar wrangling and atonal six-string scrambling, ”Chrome Forest's” towering electro-plated frondescence has given way to reveal a dense, chromium-infused understory of infinite realms - a web of overgrown tangles and knots, spaghetti strung in service to a photosynthetic ecosystem out of control.
The roots run deep.
Chrome Forest has been cultivated by Stephen Mattos, formerly of Arab On Radar and Athletic Automaton. In addition to Chrome Jackson, he is presently a member of Doomsday Student.
Following a split 7” with DIAGRAM A and scattered, shadowy live performances, CHROME JACKSON brings the hammer down with a full length debut courtesy of 5nakefork and SKiN GRAFT Records. The SKiN GRAFT manufactured on demand CD and digital download include two bonus tracks, unavailable on the vinyl edition, for a sweltering fifty minute marathon of massive mutated metal. For the hardcore enthusiast, the immaculate "Chrome Forest" Ultimate Edition, which includes the complete MOD CD, the 5nakefork-instigated clear vinyl 12” LP, deluxe double-sided screen-printed jackets, duo-tone screen-printed inserts and a digital download.
